THE HISTORY BEHIND THE SAUCE
It goes by many names—Black excellence, Black joy, the sauce, etc.—whatever you call it, it’s threaded throughout our Black History Month features, and we’re ending our Drip Series by highlighting the history behind the sauce.
We spoke with Dr. Robert P Robinson who has served as a K-12 educator for 11 years, teaching at public high schools. His field of study is in Africana Studies & History of Education with a focus on the Black Freedom Movement, Curriculum, and Instruction.
We’re using our platform to amplify the causes that are important to our community internally + externally, donating $25,000 in honor of Black History Month to:
- The NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc.: America's premier legal organization fighting for racial justice.
- Therapy for Black Men: An American organization working to help change the narrative around Black men seeking mental health support, helping them find the resources they need.
- Therapy for Black Girls: A US-based online space dedicated to encouraging the mental wellness of Black women and girls.
- Plus, we provided 300 pairs of blue light glasses to Black Girls Code, an organization based in New York + the Bay Area dedicated to teaching girls ages 7-17 about computer programming and digital technology.
